Rahim Moore may have blew it, but Peyton lost it with the int.
Pretty sure Denver traded for him. He wasn't free.
And what difference would it make? Jerrah would still be here, the OL would be the same (or even worse, possibly), etc...
We'd still be mediocre at best.
Well he wasn't traded but I meant free as in available.
I'd have done anything to land him. He's an all time talent at the most important position on the field.
Peyton wanted to win, why would he come for this sorry excuse for a GM?
That's a beautiful thought you've got there.
The problem is that Manning wouldn't be having a storybook comeback if he were behind that freaking O-line last year. His bad neck would have been ruined and we wouldn't have got 1 superbowl with him, let alone two because he'd be done.
I agree with you that he is an all time talent. He's probably the best QB I've ever had the chance to watch.
The problem is that this o-line, which you've been very vocal about along with the D-line, would have gotten Peyton absolutely killed. So it would have been money wasted on a QB with a questionable neck (At that time) that would have been made worse by the beating he'd have taken behind a poor O-line.
IIRC he was cut by the Colts and was a free agent. He made a week long tour to different teams trying to decide where he wanted to play.
Peyton may be the best qb to ever play. I dont think there would be a good enough team and coaching staff around him to do much better then we did.
Peyton would not have come here. To many o line issues for a qb coming off the kind of injury concerns he had.
sounds good when he is healthy playing at a high level, but would we have turned on Peyton when he threw multiple interceptions against Atlanta last year...
Nothing is wrong with our line. They gave Romo plenty of time to throw.
Ditto I just hope romo can get healthy . His lack of velocity is evident right now
Peyton would have been run out of town for his postseason one-and-done's had he been quarterback of the Cowboys all this time.
Of course we should have signed peyton if we had the chance, and if anyone say differently theyre either delusional or smoking...
Romo was coming of a 31 TD 10 INT season and Peyton was coming off a broken neck. There's some serious hindsight here.
Yeah, like Tony was run out of town? Peyton and Romo don't even belong in the same sentence.
Peyton gets rid of the ball so fast. He'd make this OLine look much better than they are.
How anybody thinks our OLine would be Peyton's downfall here is beside me.
Plus. Our pass protection now is absolutely good enough.
There's no doubt Peyton is better than Romo. But we were never in position to even have a chance at Peyton.
Our o line is in much better shape now and I agree they are giving romo better protection. However, At the time Peyton was touring the nfl we were a mess on the line.
This is true but who is to say he couldn't have helped make it better? I believe Peyton demands players around him play to a higher level and it works. He is always way smarter at the line than Romo is and I believe that gives his Oline a major advantage as well.
Peyton is a top ten all time QB and Romo is not even a Hall of Famer, don't get me wrong. My comment was more on the treatment of Dallas Cowboys in the media. Romo's struggles were enough for ESPN to create an "Elimination Games" statistic. I think it is fair to assume after 8 times in the playoffs that Peyton Manning has gone one-and-done that he'd get similar skewering between the success of Roger and Troy and just Dallas being Dallas.
